Does your pup want to pawty?

You can get your pooch into the Carnival spirit in the Krewe of Barkloxi’s debut Bow Wow Paw-rade on Feb. 19, presented by the Biloxi Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, Biloxi Main Street, the Humane Society of South Mississippi and The Dawg House.

The family-friendly festivities will begin at 2 p.m. at the Town Green.

Dogs dressed for Mardi Gras success will be judged in categories of most-creative costume, cuteness, happiest dog and who wears it best , and pet parents are encouraged to dress in costumes similar to those their fur babies are sporting.

Pre-registration is required to enter a dog in the parade. There is no registration fee, but monetary donations are requested to benefit the Humane Society.

Sponsorship booths ranging from $50 to $250 are available for those promoting products and services for dogs.
